HC Deb 09 March 1922 vol 151 cc1531-2W

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that a gang of aliens, under various names, have committed a series of frauds upon Manchester merchants and shopkeepers; that one, under the name of Norman Kingsley, aged 21 years, was sentenced by Mr. Commissioner Tobin, at the Manchester Assizes, to 10 months' imprisonment for the fraud of £2,363; that he had been previously convicted at Quarter Sessions, being released in 1920 after serving a term of four months in the second division; and will he see that this man, being an undesirable alien, and others of his gang are deported from the country?


I have nothing before me indicating that Kingsley, or any other person associated with him in his recent offences is an alien. If the hon. Member has any evidence to that effect, I shall be glad to have it.
